St Patrick Crafts

With so many cute St Patrick Crafts floating around, I was GREEN with envy. So, I got to work during nap time and made a green display of my own. I did not purchase anything new for this shelf. I was surprised how many green items and supplies I had on hand. This may look familiar to any facebook fans. :)



I made the "Oh so LUCKY to have you" sign and will have the printable posted for you soon! (I didn't want this post to be monstrous!) I will also explain the vase if anyone is curious.



For now, let's take a closer look at the Shamrock banner shall we.



Supplies:
  • cardboard
  • green fabric scraps
  • green scrapbook paper
  • green ribbon
  • hot glue
  • 3D shamrock stickers


For starters, make your shamrock. Cut out three hearts and a trianglish stem shape from some food boxes you have in the recycle bin (that ones for you Kim.) I used a muffin box and a cereal box.



Next, wrap with fabric scraps and secure with hot glue. If you need more detail, refer to my fabric heart tutorial.



I added a 5 inch lollie and a little bow with hot glue.




String that baby onto a ribbon with a few more lollies secured with paper clips and you're good to go! There is a good lollie tutorial from Margie Aslett, so I won't reinvent the wheel. The shamrocks in the middle are 3D stickers I left over from last year's scrappy shamrock wreath.

That is sooooooo cute. I wish I was as productive during nap time. I usually make brownies and talk on the phone. I need to get busy.

Wow! That's really cute. The longer I looked at your pictures, the more I liked it. I love the banner...that's really amazing.

But I think my favorite part is the most simple. I like how you have the picture of your kid right next to the "Lucky to have you." Just think that's pretty cool.

Thans for sharing!
